Sliced Raw Veggies with Coarse Sea Salt
The other night when I got home from work I had a lot of fresh vegetables from the garden, and needed a quick vegetable side or salad to go along with our pasta.
I took a just picked green pepper, lemon cucumber, and pink Brandywine tomato. I sliced the pepper into strips and fanned them out. I sliced the lemon cucumber and tomato into thin rounds and laid them out. Everything got a sprinkling of coarse Fleur de Sel and a bit of freshly picked purple basil. It was quick. It was tasty. The veggies were sweet. It was perfect. Just a hint of coarse sea salt made the natural flavors pop. No special salad dressing, dip, or fancy knife work. Just fresh from the garden vegetables with sea salt.
The next time you need an easy and fast vegetable dish, try this out. Choose vegetables in season for the best flavor. You’ll be amazed at what a bit of coarse sea salt will do.
